SFMOMA may be closing for renovations on June 2, but the it's not slacking on its well-established relationship between food and art in the meantime. In honor of the closing of the exhibit Ben Kinmont: Prospectus, the museum is partnering with restaurants like State Bird Provisions, Rich Table, Bar Tartine, Outerlands, Bar Jules, and Camino to create dishes inspired by the exhibit's exploration of artists who moved onto other professions. Dishes will pay tribute to subjects featured by Kinmont, like Lygia Clark, Hans de Vries, Jon Hendricks and Jean Toche, Raivo Puusemp, Laurie Parsons, Gretchen Faust, and Bridget Barnhart, and will be available on restaurant menus through June 12.
